Dry Creek is a jewel in the crown of the Golden State according to Allison Bailin Batz in her recent article for FabulousCalifornia. “As one might expect, the best adventures in Dry Creek are centered around wine,” says Batz. She’s right!
In addition to incredible wines, Dry Creek serves up beautiful vistas, acres of vineyards, and a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. Did you know we have just two roads, two stop signs, and no traffic lights in Dry Creek Valley? You’ll be among the vines surrounded by tree-studded hillsides, yet only a few minutes from the charming town of Healdsburg.
Tasting marvelous wines is the reason to visit Dry Creek. Batz shares a list of her favorites. We are honored to be on the list with some of our own favorite winery neighbors. Here’s what she says about Amista:
Even though she narrowed down her list of wineries from 80 to 12 of her favorites, you may need more than a weekend to check them out!
Local’s tip: be sure to have some food as you venture out wine tasting. You can pick up sandwiches or deli items on your way into Dry Creek at Big John’s, our incredible local market, or pop into the historic Dry Creek General Store for takeout sandwiches and salads. Or you can order a cheese and charcuterie board when you visit us at Amista!
“Oh, we are not done yet! You cannot leave Dry Creek without checking out at least a few of the lauded restaurants and bars,” adds Batz. Totally agree and she has some of our favorites on the list. We also love Baci Café and Wine Bar, Campo Fina and Willi’s Seafood. You’ll need a place to stay while you’re in Healdsburg, and we have some nice ones. The article showcases several terrific boutique hotels.
